About the artist -
In 2011 Debbie started to paint under the direction of her grandfather and senior Tiwi elder, Justin Puruntatameri and Florence Coombes, her mother. Justin in particular was able to give Debbie invaluable advice on what she could correctly portray as defined by her Tiwi family ties. Debbie is now well known in artistic circles for her joyful depictions of Tiwi Life in figurative forms. People travelling by cars and canoes of all shapes and sizes to the football. A huge part of contemporary Tiwi lifestyle.
About the art centre -
Munupi Arts & Crafts Association is located along Melville Islands north-western coastline at Pirlangimpi (Garden Point) and is the most recently formed art centre on the Tiwi Islands. In 1990 the Yikikini Women's Centre and Pirlangimpi Pottery were incorporated under the name Munupi Arts and Crafts Association giving local artists an opportunity to proudly celebrate Tiwi culture through both traditional and contemporary mediums.
For 25 years Munupi Art has been a vital meeting place for the Tiwi people of the Pirlangimpi community of employments, cultural pride and well being. Munupi Art is wholly indigenous owned and governed. General income supports the artist's families and therefore the whole Tiwi community.
Royalties from this product directly benefit the artist and their community.
